Here are some skills we’ve been working on:

Homework is to practice MobyMax Math or Khan Academy for at least 15 minutes.

Science: We learned that the earth has around 20 features that make it habitable for life: oxygen atmosphere, right location from sun, correct size star, rocky planet, liquid water, magnetic field, and many others. All these features are needed for life and show that earth-like planets are rare in the universe.
